Mike Hayman, Certified Arborist
Minutes: The minutes of the meeting held on May 8, 2014 were approved.
Financial Report: Information was not available from the City’s office in order to prepare the report.
Chairperson Report: Board member, John Hancock, has resigned due to an out of town work
assignment. We appreciate John’s input and help in the time he was able to serve.
Nominations for filling two board positions was discussed. Martha will contact those mentioned.
The Windy Hills Ice Cream Social will be held on The Green on Sunday, September 22. Scenic
Kentucky will make their presentation at this event.
Arborist Report: Mike reported that the 11 redbuds planted on The Green were lost this winter. They
will be replanted sometime between the Fall-March. The new curb-cut is almost finished. The new
irrigation system should ready in 1-2 weeks. All the new trees on The Green need watering now since
we have not had sufficient rain fall recently. Mike recommends that Lawnco water now while the
irrigation is being installed. Martha will contact the Mayor with Mike’s recommendation.
The three crape myrtles at the Westport Road and Foebum entrance were also lost this winter and will
be replaced by The Plant Kingdom under their one year planting guarantee policy.
Mike has staked out six locations for trees along Westport Road near Foeburn and will contact BUD.
He will continue to search for good trees for that difficult location.
Work Plan 2014-15: The draft was reviewed and approved as amended to be submitted to the Mayor
and City Council for their approval.
Newsletter: Terese will be able to use information from the Arbor Day Foundation newsletters as a
reliable source for our articles and city wide email blasts while acknowledging the Arbor Day
Tree City USA: The large reflective metal street signs that the Arbor Day Foundation provided have
been returned to them because we will not be using them. Another design is being cosidered.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
Martha Davis, Chair
